You've never purchased it in iTunes, therefore it won't say "app already purchased"...everything on your iPhone is connected to iTunes.
The same is true from iPhone to Android.
You could possible contact a developer to see if they will help you out...but that is an extreme shot in the dark and probably pretty unlikely.

Android apps do not use the same programming that iOS does, so they will not work on iOS.
Besides, with the retina display, they'll all look better, anyway. I enjoyed buying Plants Vs. Zombies, again, for my iPad, the larger screen is fantastic, even though it's not retina.
You'll also no longer have the option to bill them to your Sprint account, since they have to be purchased through the iOS app store.

Let's wrap this up neatly and tie it in a bow.
1. Android apps run on the Android operating system.
2. iPhone/iPad/iPod apps run on iOS.
3. Apps for iOS must be purchased through iTunes - there is no other sales outlet.
4. Although you can purchase Android apps through several different venues, and even sideload apps, they will only run on the Android operating system, not iOS.
5. Even when developers code their apps to work on multiple platforms, you will still have to purchase a license for each platform. This is especially true when you're dealing with iTunes.
